Sometimes, the smallest teams have the best jersey designs! This BAKU team jersey is simplistic yet bold that proudly shows the colours of the Azerbaijani flag.

The Synergy Baku Cycling Project is a UCI Continental team will based in Azerbaijan with the help of David McQuaid, rider David McCann and former Team Sky pro Jeremy Hunt.
I was recently reminded of the team when ProCycling Magazine ran a four page feature in the July 2013 Edition, which feature the team, it`s objectives and some of it`s results. By chance, Cycling weekly ran a three page feature on England`s Dave Clark on a recent training ride which came out the same week!
Procycling flew to Azerbaijan to discover more about the Synergy Baku Cycling Project, the new team funded by oil and hoping to develop an Azerbaijani rider for the 2016 Olympics.
Essentially, it`s a smaller-budget "Astana" if you like, just with a far better looking kit design!
